Petitbon "hired" before Gibbs

I was curious what was going on before Gibbs was hired in 1981. Apparently Beathard had determined he wanted a defensive assistant (Petitbon) to be promoted to Defensive Coordinator. Of course, Beathard said "...this would have to be approved by the new coach..." But the similarities are striking.

Check it out the original story from the post here: On the RAC: RAC Exclusive!

Thanks for posting. That was good stuff. It looks like Zorn is starting to bring in his own guys on offense, like Gibbs did. And he's leaving alone the defense, like Gibbs did. Let's hope like hell it works.

It's a article scanned from the Post from 25 years ago.

Re: Petitbon "hired" before Gibbs

Hmmm... Relative unkown offensive coach from a winning coaching tree. Position coach promoted to DC. DC and majority of assistants hired before HC.
This is so unheard of and never done.

Re: Petitbon "hired" before Gibbs

Wow, GREAT find!! Did you also see in the article that Bethard interviewd 8 coaches (to date in the article) in addition to Gibbs... So interviewing a large number of coaches, some coaches already on staff, hmm, sounds kinda familiar..

Re: Petitbon "hired" before Gibbs

The difference is at least Beathard paid lip-service to the new Coach's authority by saying "but the final decision, of course, will be made by the head coach." It's a little thing but it makes a difference imho.

<<The difference is at least Beathard paid lip-service to the new Coach's authority by saying "but the final decision, of course, will be made by the head coach." It's a little thing but it makes a difference imho.>>

Agree, but the fact of the matter is Petitbon did get the job. And so one can only assume that during the interview Bobby must have said to Gibbs, "How would you feel about having Petitbon as the D-coord?" I imagine Gibbs said, "That would be great."

Because that is exactly what happened. The similarities to the Zorn/Blache hire are uncanny, imho. I just think it's amazing none of the "Professional" media have mentioned this...

Or the fact that Zorn is not the first guy to be hired as a Head Coach without any prior Head Coaching experience, or experience as an Offensive/Defensive Co-ordinator. You would think that this hasn't happened in history. That Zorn was sweeping floors and counting Chicken McNuggets the past 10 years

Why would they? How do you bash an orgnization with evidence to the contrary?
